My dearest Rylan –
As we rocked out to The Strumbellas and Florence & The Machines tonight while daddy cooked dinner (thank you Hello Fresh for coming into our life last week), you playing the drums and guitar while I was in charge of the trumpet solos, I briefly remembered…for a mere moment…what like was like when it was just the three of us.
The last four months have been a whirlwind. From welcoming your brother, the holidays and Caden’s RSV scare, you’ve been right here. Growing up by leaps and bounds before our eyes. And when I step back and wipe away all of the struggles – you are SUCH a 3.5 year old boy right now – I see the kindest and most patient little boy who has handled the chaos of becoming a big brother like an absolute champ.
Thank you my sweet boy.
